What i used to do when LED 1st hit the streets and the compatible flasher units where not readily available was to fit a hidden "slave bulb" in line which loaded up the flasher unit and kept its normal flash times..A hidden bulb in a standed holder could go behind the side panels or if you have Ramair you could fit it in the original filter box....A cheap fix and even cheaper than a couple of load resistors ;)

I had integrated LED indicators on my tiger 1050 without any resistors. Flashed a bit quicker but not quick enough to fail MOT. So I assume sometimes they might not be needed at all.
